My most used Bible Version is the English Contemporary Version, but as a carry Bible I use the NKJV. Like a lot of the others, I grew up on the KJV and the opinion of my parents was that all the other versions were trash, :). If I want a literal translation I will use the ASV. In my e-Sword program I have ASV, CEV, ESV, ISV, KJV, KJV+ and the RV where I can do comparisons and look at parallels. I used to use and carry the NIV, but after reading an article by Mark Treske I went and bought both Linda and I a copy of the NKJV, which we love.
